How To Measure and Cut-To-Size Policy [X]
Cut-To-Size Items are Non-Returnable!
As per our Shipping and Returns Policy, custom cuts and fabricated parts are non-returnable. If you need an over- or undersized item, note it under "Comments" during Checkout. Cut-to-size orders have an acceptable cut tolerance of 1/8" (0.125"), so clarify if the adjustment is to be made on the (+) or (-) side of the saw blade. Please review our full return and shipping policy here.
Measure Twice, Cut Once
Since custom cuts and fabricated parts are non-refundable, be very careful while measuring your dimensions. As each cut is nominal, even the slightest miscalculation could be costly.
How to Use a Measuring Tape
Extend your tape measure several inches to find the 1 and 2 inch markers. In between the inch markers you’ll find 16 equally spaced tick marks.
Measure by counting the increments beyond the nearest inch. As the increments decrease, so does the length of the mark. For example, 1/2" has a bigger mark than 1/4" which has a bigger mark than 1/8". The smallest mark follows at 1/16". Please be aware that some measuring tapes may have even smaller increments.
Features of a Measuring Tape: Sliding End Hook
The sliding end hook is designed for two different types of measurements. An outside measurement (where the hook of the tape hangs over an edge), requires the hook to slide out a bit to account for the thickness of the material. When making an inside measurement (where the hook will push up against a surface), the clip slides in, again, accounting for its thickness. The measuring tape self-adjusts to guarantee an accurate measurement (as far as the tape is concerned).
Sanitizing Acrylic and Polycarbonate Sheet [X]
Acrylic and Polycarbonate Sneeze Guards and like products require special care while cleaning and disinfecting. To maintain the optical clarity of sneeze guards and other acrylic or polycarbonate items, use an acrylic or polycarbonate safe cleaner like Novus Plastic Polish #1, Brillianize Plastic Cleaner, or a mild soap solution.
Please reference the following compatible cleaners when DISINFECTING acrylic and polycarbonate items. The use of commonly available commercial alcohol or ammonia-based disinfectants may cause crazing and damage.
Compatible Polycarbonate Disinfectants:
• sBioMed Steriplex SD
• Safetec Surface Wipes
• Contec Healthcare Perodox RTU
• Contec Healthcare PS-911 EB Prostat Sterile Wipes
Compatible Acrylic Disinfectants:
• Pharmacy Grade Hydrogen Peroxide
• Household Bleach
• Isopropyl Alcohol (Water Diluted to 30% Strength)

Blue copolymer acetal is the preferred color and material when it comes to the food processing industry. It provides better visibility of potentially unwanted particulates during processing. A low coefficient of friction (COF) alongside excellent wear properties, especially in wet or moist environments, makes acetal one of the most widely used engineering thermoplastics on the market today, and an ideal fit for food processing environments. Our blue acetal sheets are FDA and USDA compliant.
Low Moisture Absorption
Acetal sheets are ideal when working in wet environments as they absorbs minimal amounts of moisture, and with a high level of heat resistance, can be heated or cooled without affecting form or dimensionality. Acetal sheets are used in hot water applications up to 140°F without any hydrolysis effect. Unlike other materials that may erode from acidic water, hard water does not harm acetal sheets.
- Low stress, cost effective material
- FDA/USDA compliant
- Consistent properties in wet or moist environments
- Very low moisture absorption
- Excellent dimensional stability

Acetal copolymers offer superior hot water resistance, more resistance to strong alkalies and thermal-oxidative degradation, improved impact resistance, and much lower outgassing compared to their acetal homopolymer counterparts.
Blue acetal material is typically used in the following applications:
- Conveying equipment
- Food processing
- Medical and pharmaceutical equipment
